Why would Clinton concede now?

Seriously, if the rolls were reversed, would you be telling OBama to drop out?
Yes, it is true that it's virtually impossible to for her to win the magic number required to clinch the nomination. But it's impossible for Obama to do the same. Yes, he has the lead and is unlikely to lose it, but the lead isn't good enough. You have to win outright. Neither candidate seems likely to be able to this on primaies alone, especially after last night.
Think about, what candidate in his or her right mind would drop out when they just won two major contests and have won the largest states that have held primaries to date AND they look strong for the last major contest, PA? National polls, for what they are worth, show a tightening race. Again, I cannot imagine the same Obama supporters urging him to drop out if the rolls were exactly reversed in terms of delegates and he had just won Ohio and Texas, and had wins in places like CA, NY, NJ, MA under his belt and polls showed him leading in PA.
